As expected, ABC is folding David E. Kelley's eight-year-old Practice in May, but the network has ordered a Kelley-scripted spin-off centered on James Spader. According to USA Today, the new series will begin to take shape this month on The Practice, when Spader's character, Alan Shore, is fired, files a wrongful-termination suit and joins a bigger firm. Practice co-stars Rhona Mitra and Jessica Capshaw are also expected to join the spin-off.
